Man gets 10 years for intoxication manslaughter From Staff Reports The Enterprise District Judge Ana Lisa Garza last week sentenced Antonio Douglas (Tony) Rose to serve 10 years in prison for causing the death of Nick Inocencio in July 2011. Rose, 30, was operating a vehicle on Highway 359 west of

Hebbronville when he lost control of the vehicle and skidded off the road, striking a tree. Inocencio, a passenger in the vehicle, was killed instantly from the impact. Rose himself suffered severe injuries and was paralyzed from the waist down. A third passenger in the vehicle was not seriously injured. According to court docu-

ments, Rose was intoxicated at the time and was driving 100 mph when the accident occurred. Following his release from the hospital, Rose was indicted and entered a guilty plea in March, asking for leniency in the death of his friend, and stating that he was already being punished because of his injury. After a sentencing hearing in

May, where the Court also heard from Inocencio’s family, Judge Garza cited the seriousness of the offense, and what she perceived as a failure by Rose to accept responsibility as the reasons for her sentence. Rose, who was on probation at the time of the accident, also received a two- year sentence for the revocation of his probation.

In addition, and while the Manslaughter case was pending, Rose was arrested in February of this year and charged with Possession of approximately 100 grams of cocaine, according to court documents obtained by The Enterprise. This charge was also taken into consideration in the sentence.

A Gala Event More on this story in next week’s South Texas History

By Poncho Hernandez The Enterprise Nationally recognized jewelry designer, author and photographer Dian L. Malouf - who also happens to be a native of Hebbronville - brought her Jewelry Trunk Show to Xtreme Ranch Sales & Hunting during a personal appearance Friday. Known for her bold silver and gold jewelry enlivened with diamonds and semiprecious stones, Malouf is described as one of only a few jewelry designers whose work is instantly recognizable. She began designing jewelry in 1986 and has designed thousand of pieces, Dian L. Malouf autographs a copy many of which of her book “Seldom Heard” at a are prized by col- design show held Friday at Xtreme lectors. Her fans Ranch Sales & Hunting. include Oprah Winfrey and Elton John. In February 2013, Malouf introduced what she described as “an innovative collection of rings for fashionable gentlemen who are headed down the aisle of commitment.”

“Women have every jewelry choice in the world, attractive to splendid, but it’s hard to find men’s rings that are interesting,” the designer told PRNewswire.

On Friday, the author of two books and the mother of four said her fond memories of Hebbronville helped provide the inspiration for her writings.

... we bought raspas from a truck By Cynthia Gutierrez The Enterprise Last week I bought my first raspa of the summer. I love raspas; shouldn’t eat them. It’s like eating pure syrup. I remember the shaved ice, soaked in syrupy goodness, the shock of sweet and cold on your tongue on a hot summer’s day. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t remember the truck that drove up and down the streets of town, playing that little jingle that signaled the arrival of the raspa man. His truck was a converted pick up with a shelf built in to the back that held the ice shaver and the bottles of syrup. There was always a sign printed on the side that said “SLOW CHILDREN”.

I always wondered if it was a pun. You could hear the raspa man coming from blocks away. We heard the music he would play to announce his arrival and run to our parents to beg a dime to buy a raspa. Back then, there weren’t many flavor choices; red, purple, and yellow. My favorite was red. It was either cherry or strawberry. I don’t think it mattered because they all tasted the same. Sometimes,

if we could get another fifteen cents, we would buy a raspa con nieve. This was a concoction that had a scoop of ice cream at the bottom, with the shaved ice and syrup on top. Older residents may remember buying raspas off a push cart like the paleta carts you might see in Laredo. I don’t know how they kept the ice from melting, but the vendor made his way up and down the streets of town selling raspas from his little cart with jingle bells on the front calling children to come buy his treats. Later, little raspa stands started popping up all over town. Many of you will remember Snoopy Snow across the street from the Little League park.

Lucy Lanier Leyendecker Long BRUNI - Lucy Lanier Leyendecker Long, 89, passed from this life peacefully on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at the Meridian Care in Hebbronville, Texas. Her life was a blessing and her memory a treasure. Lucy was born on June 21, 1923 to Louis Lawrence Leyendecker and Lilian Alice Jeffers Leyendecker in Laredo, Texas. She was a loving, generous, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Lucy was a devout Catholic who attended St. Peters Catholic School in her younger school years and graduated in 1941 from Martin High School in Laredo Texas. She then attended Sul Ross College in Alpine, Texas where she was voted most beautiful and posed for a tourist postcard along the river at St. Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Lucy married John S. Long and a few years lat-

er moved to Bruni, Texas where she raised her family and participated in community activities including altar society, boy scouts, substitute teaching, chaperoning school activities and PTA. She was well known for her homemade fudge and Pan de Polvo cookies. Lucy was preceded in death by her husband, John S. Long; daughter-in-law, Pam Long; parents; three brothers; two sisters and many other beloved relatives and lifelong friends. She is survived by her three children; John L. Long of Oilton, Texas, Diann

(Bill) Billings of Freer, Texas and Barbara (John) Faseler of Lake Jackson, Texas; 10 grandchildren, her namesake, Lucy Denean Billings of San Antonio, Texas, Will (Susan) Billings of San Antonio, Texas, Michael Billings of Miami, FL, Sherri (Gene) Wolf of El Paso, Texas, Gerri Lynn White of Cortez, CO, Laurie (Kenneth) Wood of Delta, CO, John Frederick Long of Oilton, Texas, John (Mary) Faseler, Jr. of Austin, Texas, Keith (Jacqueline) Faseler of Pearland, Texas and Brad Faseler of Bellaire, Texas; 10 great-granddaughters; 10 great-grandsons; one brother; two sisters and numerous nieces and nephews. Visitation was held from 5:00 till 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2013 at the Funeraria Del Angel Howard Williams in Hebbronville, Texas. Funeral Mass was held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Bruni, Texas. Burial followed at the

These newer stands offered more exotic flavors like Tiger Blood, a combination of wild cherry and coconut. And I recently heard of one really wild mixture called the Chupacabra, which layers lemon, orange, and cherry syrups with slices of dill pickles between the layers. But whatever you call them, it is still fascinating to watch adults eat raspas. They become transformed into children, with syrup dripping off their chins, leaving great red mustaches over their lips, a guilty little treat. I bet if you close your eyes and think about it right now, that little tune will play in your memory. I would further bet that as you listen to that tune in your mind, you would start craving a raspa.

Enterprise sports writer to play in WSOP

By Jose Rios Athletic Director/Head Football Coach Greetings everyone, It was another great work week. Our summer track athletes competed in Odem and Sinton this past weekend. Our Longhorns and Lady Longhorns did very well, winning several events. Our relays also won several races. Thanks to all our coaches and student athletes for participating in our summer track program and a huge thank you to all the parents for supporting our program and traveling to the meets to support our kids. We are hosting several summer sports camps this week. We had several girls participate in our volleyball camp on Monday and our boys participated in a basketball camp on Tuesday. There will be a girls basketball camp on Wednesday, June 19th and softball / baseball on Thursday, June 20th. Below is the schedule for the remaining camps:

From staff reports The Enterprise Hebbronville Enterprise sports writer Rey Sifuentes Jr. is scheduled to compete at the 44th annual World Series of Poker which is going on at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino. Making his eighth consecutive trek to the WSOP, Sifuentes is registered as a player in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em tournament which is scheduled for Sunday, June 23. Sifuentes has been the sports writer for the Enterprise these past two school years. He currently lives in Mount Pleasant (75455) where he is employed as a daily newspaper sports writer. When not covering high school sports for numerous Texas newspapers, Sifuentes occasionally travels to Shreveport LA , and Durant OK to play in tournaments. Still an amateur, Sifuentes began playing poker in 2004 and became a regular at bar leagues in San Antonio and Kingsville before moving to Mount Pleasant in August 2011. Sifuentes has won 29 bar league nightly titles and once came in third at a state tournament hosted by Bar

Page 3

Placing at the World Series of Poker, however, is something Sifuentes has yet to do – he has never made it out of day one of a tournament, or won any money. In his first venture in 2006, Sifuentes busted out of the Celebrity/Media charity tournament (which does not have a buy-in) on the very first hand. He caught Pocket Queens, went all-in, and was called by two other players. One of his opponents turned over Pocket Kings and the other revealed AceJack. The other three Aces were turned up on the table and Sifuentes’ inaugural WSOP was brief.

The cost of the camp is $10 per child per camp. There will be some good teaching going on by the directors and I know our campers will learn plenty of skills and drills that will help them in the future. Our summer weight training and conditioning program is currently in progress. Our female athletes workout at 5:30 pm while our male athletes workout at 6:30 pm. Parents, please encourage your children to attend our workouts. They are Monday Thursday for all 7th graders 12th graders. It is imperative that our student athletes participate in these workouts because this is where championships are built. Our opponents are working hard so we have to match their effort or we will fall behind. This program will train our student athletes to become physically and mentally stronger. It will also make them better athletes because they will be stronger and faster which will help them excel in all sports. I am asking for your support in encouraging your children to participate. It is one hour a day to win championships!! Quote of the week: The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The true tragedy lies in not having a goal to reach! Until next week: A LONGHORN NEVER QUITS!!

WEDNESDAY, June 19, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Count to 10 if you must, but don’t lose your temper, despite that person’s (you know who!) efforts to goad you into reacting. Your restraint will pay off in a big way. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week finds you in a sociable mood, ready and eager to enjoy the company of family and friends. It’s also a good time to seek out and renew old friendships. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Patience is called for as you await a decision about that project you’re eager to launch. Meanwhile, try to set aside more time to share with that special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid becoming involved in a workplace dispute early in the week by insisting both sides submit their stands to a neutral arbitrator. Things begin to cool off by Thursday. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It promises to be a busy but productive week for the Big Cat. The pace slows by Friday, allowing you to catch up on matters you put aside but that now need your attention. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suddenly disruptive family situation is best handled with a cool, calm and collected response. Wait until things settle to let off all that pent-up emotional steam. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your practical side dominates the week as you reassess your finances to make some sensible adjustments in what you plan to spend and what you expect to save. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected meeting with a former colleague opens some interesting possibilities. But you need to press for full disclosure before making a decision. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent flurry of activity eases by midweek, giving you time to readjust your disrupted schedule and make new plans for a weekend getaway. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You’re usually the one who gives advice. But now it’s time to open yourself up to counsel from friends who have your best interests at heart. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find resistance to your call for a full inquiry into a workplace problem. But by week’s end even the most rigid naysayers begin to come around. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A recurring problem surfaces once again. Maybe it’s time you used your creative talents to help you find a new approach to resolving it once and for all. BORN THIS WEEK: You are guided in what you do both by your intelligence and your emotions. An acting career would suit you quite well. Discounts Are the Real Deal A young guy working in a restaurant recently made my day. He leaned over and whispered that if I asked for the “senior dinner,” I would save nearly $2, and the senior dinner came with extras. Who wouldn’t want that? Sometimes the hardest part of getting a senior discount is knowing what age qualifies as “senior.” Do they mean 50, when AARP starts sending us mail? Or 55? Or is it 60, 62 or 65? To find locations in your area that give a senior discount, check these locations online: -- The site is called “Seniors Pay Less,” and it’s organized the information by category. Put in your ZIP code and the distance you’re willing to travel. I learned, for example, that there’s actually a pizza shop in my area that gives an over-55 discount. -- Full access costs $12.95 a year, but may be worth it if you’ll use your senior discounts. As a sample of the free access, go to the site, click on “restaurants” in the drop down menu and put in your ZIP code. Your best bet is to call businesses and ask in advance (even Senior Discounts has some outdated information). If there are certain places in your area that you like to shop or have a meal, call to inquire about their age cutoff for seniors discounts. Make your own list. Don’t forget some of the big-ticket items, like your property tax. Some municipalities give discounts to seniors. If you’re traveling, ask about a senior discount for motels, airfare and car rental. Ask in places where you routinely spend money, such as the grocery stores, especially the chains. Carry your AARP card in your wallet, because in many places that’s all you need.

DESIGNER - From Page 1 Her two books, “Seldom Heard” and “Cattle Kings of Texas,” have drawn praise crediting Malouf as a gifted and at times, poetic story-teller.” A third book currently being written is also based on historic Texas ranches. The Preview and Presale, sponsored by Xtreme’s Kathy Smith, was held Thursday and Friday.

Dian’s Story

When Dian Malouf began looking for a large sterling silver and gold ring, she never found one, so she designed one for herself. She wore her first design effort to Europe and was asked in four languages, "Where on earth did you find that beautiful ring?" She came home, and with out any experience or business background, designed more rings. All were quickly sold. That was thousands of designs ago. Dian's recognizable designs immediately distinguish her in a market crowded with other established jewelry designers. Her bold creations dazzle the confident woman, many of whom are art ball chairs, CEOs, and on the "A List." A 4th generation Texan, Dian believes strongly not only in Texas but also the United States. All of her jewelry is made in America, a principle about which she is passionate. This spirited pioneer has published two books on the most reclusive ranchers in South Texas. Her limited

edition of Cattle Kings of Texas was presented in a hand tooled leather saddle bag with a sterling silver belt buckle. The White House recently requested the remaining copies of this limited edition to present as gifts to heads of state. The regular edition quickly sold ­­­­out. Cattle Kings is scheduled to be reprinted in late 2009. Dian's second book, Seldom Heard: Ranches, Ranchos, and Rumors of the South Texas Brush Country is still in print and is available at book stores, such as Borders, and through the publisher, Beyond Words Publishing Company: (800) 284-9673. This year Dian will complete her third book, written on the remaining most remote and dangerous places on the Texas-Mexican border. This third book has taken twelve years of hearing "no" from various ranch owners… a red light challenge to a green light woman. Dian's jewelry has sold to Oprah, Elton John, Randy Travis, and enough other stars to fill the night sky. But her "Go Girl" ring has been perhaps her most rewarding personal experience. This ring, along with along with a message from Dian, tells women to "hang in there" regardless of circumstances. The "Go Girl" (part of the proceeds of which go to breast cancer research) has become a comfort to many breast cancer survivors and others

Why I Like History ... at the movies By Angelina Gutierrez The Enterprise

here is something magical about sitting in a dark, cool movie theater. The show starts, and suddenly you find yourself transported to another time and place. And for about 2 hours, everything else fades. Then you step out of the theater and back into reality. One of the things I like about history is that it seems to find some of its best expression in film. Every couple of years or so, Hollywood produces a great historical film. In recent years, we’ve seen big box office hits like “Lincoln,” which gave us an intimate look at President Lincoln’s motives and struggles at the height of the Civil War,

Page 5

and “The King’s Speech,” a film about King George VI, who overcame personal adversity, all the while under intense public scrutiny. These movies are endearing because they are familiar and relatable. Other great films include “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “Argo” “The Great Escape,”

and “Apollo 13.” Far from boring, these movies are epic narratives that offer surprising insight into the people and places that made history. Whether it’s a story we’re all familiar with, or one that is completely new, these films have the ability to teach us something about our past. Popular historical films tend to portray great figures and events that played a vital role in shaping the world as we know it. The best ones try to relate the story and characters to modern moviegoers, combining both sweeping scenes and intimate moments that bring the history to vivid life. Whether it’s a movie about the Civil War or the King of England, there are some things that are just clearer when

seen and heard. There is a reason why these movies are usually a shoo-in at the Oscars. We all like a good story. Whatever you want – action, suspense, romance, or mystery – you’re likely to find it in a historical drama. The simple truth is that history is fascinating. It is filled with stories of bitter heartbreak and enduring love, vicious betrayal and outstanding courage. What more do you need for a great film? So, whether you’re out enjoying this summer’s new big blockbusters, or watching Netflix on the couch, keep a lookout for a good historical film, and take time to reflect on where it fits into the grand historical scheme of things. I think you’ll really enjoy it.

BIBLE READINGS Jonah’s Anger at the Lord’s Compassion (N.I.V. Study Bible) By Pete Dominguez The Enterprise Jonah 4 :1-11 But Jonah was greatly displeased and be came anger. He prayed to the Lord, "O Lord, is this not what I said when I was still at home ? That is why I was so quick to flee to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. Now, O Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live." But the Lord replied, "Have you any right to be anger?" Jonah went out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. Then the Lord God provided a vine and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for this head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the vine. But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the vine so that it withered. When the sun rose, God provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah’s head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die, and said, " It would be better for me to die than to live."


But God said to Jonah," Do you have a right to be angry about the vine?" "I do, he said, " I am angry enough to die." But the Lord said, "You have been concerned about this vine, though you did not tend it or made it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight.

On Thursday, June 13, 2013 a rain mass was held at Ranch 16 north of Hebbronville. Pictured are Alisa Jo Juarez (owner of Ranch 16 and daughter of the late Mary Jo Benavides and George Juarez of Laredo, Texas) with Father Flavio of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. The mass was held to pray for rain as Jim Hogg County is in a drought and many ranches are in need of rain for their pastures and cattle. The next rain mass will take place in Randado on Thursday, June 20, 2013.
